A loan helped to buy a strimmer and a chainsaw to keep his crops free of weeds.

Gerardo's story

Gerardo, aged 45, is single. He has been working in the fields since he was 12 years old, because he comes from a very humble, rural family, who taught him everything about caring for livestock and agriculture.

Currently, he cultivates crops at the farm where he lives, which brings in sufficient earnings to cover his household costs.

He is vigorous, active and hard-working, and works diligently and conscientiously every day to help his family get ahead. He is requesting a loan to support his business, and will use the money to buy a strimmer and a chainsaw for clearing weeds from his crops. This will ensure a better harvest, and allow him to sell his produce more easily, increasing his income.

Gerardo, humble and simple, wishes only for economic stability, so that he can enjoy better living conditions.
